Child's 1850's Dress Plaid!

From the seller:

A precious child’s 1860’s Civil War era brown and beige plaid challis dress. The bodice has short sleeves that are trimmed with pleated brown silk. The neckline is trimmed with a ruffle of white cotton. The neck and waist are piped. The bodice is lined with cotton and has a back brown silk button closure. The skirt is unlined. The dress is in good as found condition. There are some scattered holes in the skirt. Shoulders 9 Bust 20 ½ Waist 22 Length from shoulder to hem 21.

From Me:

Unfortunately, lately, this seller thinks *everything* is 1860's. This is probably about 1855 based on the bodice and sleeves. It could have been for either a boy or a girl as boys wore dresses until they were out of diapers.
